Horse Camps

Horse Camp is a great way for young riders to attain the “total” horse experience. At Horse Camp, students become totally immersed in all things horses — from basic horsemanship to veterinary care to riding in structured lessons and in fun games.

Summer Camp

Strideaway Farms Summer Camp aims to incorporate the ideals of the Riding Academy in a prolonged format. Each session of Summer Camp runs from 10:00am – 2:00pm, Mondays through Fridays. Camp Activities include, but are not limited to, learning to recognize and assemble basic tack, anatomy of the horse, introduction to course design and gymkhana games on horseback. Each day also includes an hour long group riding lesson.  Mostly camp is about having fun with our horse friends!

While we allow students with all different levels of riding experience to participate, we ask new riders to take a month of lessons in our Riding Academy to ensure they can keep up with most of the mounted activities. We also limit the number Erin Camp Leader of campers per session to four to ensure each camper gets individual attention despite being in a group setting. Our Summer Camp often fills up quickly so be sure to reserve a spot early.

Camp Counselors and Junior Helpers

One of our favorite parts of the summer camp experience is the involvement of our Camp Counselors and Junior Helpers. These are students that have come up through our program and have at one time participated in the summer camps themselves. Camp Counselors take an active role in teaching much of the horsemanship elements of the camp. Junior Helpers assist and help in a smaller role. Allowing our older more experienced students an opportunity to teach benefits both campers and counselors and builds a great sense of camaraderie throughout our program. The riding portion of the camp is taught by one of our Camp Directors with the Camp Counselors assisting.
